Re: Tees - Abbey Rapids

In the days of access agreements... access to the majority of the ww section of the Tees was sacrificed so that the slalomists could have unobstructed use of Abbey Rapids. So, yes, historically it was essentially the case that paddlers would restrict other paddlers.

Re: Paddling in the Lakes in October

It isn't the case that you *can't* paddle the rivers, just that it is still the fishing season, and you will incur the wrath of the fishy people. It is a popular area for fishing and so, for a peaceful life paddlers tend to wait till November. As others have said, it will take a massive amount of ra...

Re: Tees, high force to low force

http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/rivers/england/north-east/river-tees-high-force-to-wynch-bridge In low levels it is G 3 max. In very low levels low force becomes more difficult as the auto boof line stops and water twists to the right and sends paddlers in rock... you need to be able to make sure...

Re: Tyne Tour gig 2015

I think the ceilidh is traditional, and doesn't just appeal to one taste in music... same with a disco. Quite a few people are more interested in the drinking and socialising than appreciating music. TBH, the organisers should really look at creating a sensible option for people who just want to com...

Re: Low Force Rock

The 'missing rock' is the pinning spot that has been there for at least 25 years. You see people paddling this drop at very low levels where the risk is greater. if there is a lot of water in it you have more options. It is possible to protect this drop, but you would have to be skilled to help a pa...

Re: UKCC being dropped rumors

Nope, not at all... they have just recruited a new wave of people to train to run the courses. In Wales there was some sort of 'sign off' Instructor scheme proposed to run along side it for site specific sign offs to help out clubs and centres. not really heard any more about that. I believe Scotlan...

Tyne Tour - behind the times?

I realise this is run by volunteers, and it makes lots of money for the northern region BCU and Clubs and a lot of people give up their time and effort to run a weekend that makes lots of people very happy... and it is great that there is a Facebook page telling people about the latest developments ...

E&L are notoriously bad at paying out. I had a horse insurance policy with them and they were a complete nightmare. I later found out that this is why they are cheap. You get what you pay for

Re: J R Hartleys River Swale.

Where exactly did this happen? That section is heavily fished, and there are a couple of very vocal land owners. The town section should have been ok as the land is owned by Richmond Open Spaces trust so the Falls and the section down to the station bridge should be ok
